1. What happens when I fail an exam/assignment of a course?
Any participant receiving a grade below 55% in any course receives a failing grade "F". The student can request a make-up exam in writing from the Graduate Course Administrator.
Make-up exams will only take place on dates when other exams of any subject are normally scheduled and can only be requested within three months from the initial date of the course. Students can check in the Intranet→Academic Calendar (Generic Calendar Mode) when are the other exams scheduled during the academic year.
Alternatively, the student will have to take the exam the next time the exam of the relevant subject is scheduled. All make-up exams entail a charge of €100 per student in advance. If there is a cancellation there will be a charge (€50). If more than one student requests a make-up exam, the cost will be €50 for each student.

The failing grades remain on the student’s transcript.
